Mary Stafford sang blues primarily in the club circuit, but she also cut a dozen sides for Columbia in 1921 (she was the first black woman to record for Columbia). The full title of this piece is "I'm Gonna Jazz My Way Right Straight Through Paradise". It was recorded on March 7, 1921. The label credits "Mary Stafford and Her Jazz Band", but some sources I've seen credit Charlie Johnson's Orchestra with the accompaniment.

During WWII the government produced and distributed 78 RPM "Victory Discs," or V-Discs, to US troops all over the world. The records were to be destroyed after the war but many of them survived. :) A lot of the V-Disc material was taken from radio programs like Command Performance; you can find out more in the book V-Discs: A History and Discography by Richard Sears. Any error or typo is mine. :) Since the gov't produced and distributed these records they are public domain but if you...

This file includes 12 unedited WAV transfers from my new 78 RPM collection. They are all Acoustic recordings made by Isham Jones and his orchestra in the early 1920s. Some, such as "Who's Sorry Now", should be well-known to people familiar with the artist. Others, such "'Neath Egyptian skies," probably will not. I personally have never found any digital recordings of this and other songs any where on the internet. If you want to listen to my amateur attempts at...

The Louisiana Five Jazz Orchestra was one of the first New Orleans jazz bands to record, making their first records in 1918. The band had an unusual trumpet-less lineup, dominated by the clarinet of Alcide "Yellow" Nunez and Charlie Panelli's trombone. This side starts off with Harry Von Tilzer's tune "I Ain't 'en Got'en No Time To Have The Blues", but then becomes a medley of two other ragtime tunes, "Grape Juice Bill" and "Open Up The Golden Gates to...
